Margo Lemieux

Beauty is in the momentary, in the fleeting, in the reflection of an ordinary situation, made extraordinary by the capture of attention and concentration – the light on a leaf, a dramatic cloud formation, and the extraordinary grace of an angled shadow on a floor. I strive to capture the grace of a single moment…a note of music, a fragile bubble, a beautiful flower – and hold it in place forever.

Bio
Margo Lemieux has been an artist since the first grade when she got into trouble with her teacher for “decorating” her workbook. After earning a degree in fine arts in painting from Boston University, an MFA from UMass Dartmouth in printmaking, and an M. Ed. in integrated arts curriculum, she worked as a graphic designer, tee-shirt artist, newspaper correspondent, children’s book author and illustrator, and other interesting things. She is a professor in the art & graphic design department at Lasell College.
